Matthew Jukes

Matthew fell in love with UK wine at an early age. Born in Biddenden, Kent, Matthew would often be seen cycling from vineyard to vineyard, sampling the wines from the cellar door. Some years later, Matthew was instrumental in setting up blind tastings against our European counterparts, with wines from our shores coming out on top. Matthew regularly lectures, judges, speaks at wine conferences and runs masterclass tastings for both corporate and private clients all over the world. Matthew is also the creator of his ground-breaking initiative, One Day Wine School. This indulgent day of tasting and learning was first performed in 2006. With experience in all sectors of the industry he has been writing about wine for over twenty years now, and during this time has penned fourteen wine books.

Matthew has written a highly acclaimed, weekly article for MoneyWeek since 2006 and also a weekly column for the Daily Mail’s Weekend Magazine since 1999. With over 9 million Daily Mail readers a week, Matthew has the most keenly followed wine column in the UK.
